A friendship bracelet is a bracelet given by one person to others as a symbol of friendship. The origins of the friendship bracelet is said to lie with the Indigenous Peoples in Central and South America. According to tradition, one places a bracelet onto the wrist of a friend as a symbol of friendship and may wish for something at that moment. The bracelet is worn to honour the time, energy and love put into their friendship.
The idea of a bracelet to symbolise friendship is beautiful. It is a meaningful gift, that becomes so much more through the story of giving.
